Sleek i-Divine Storm Palette review

Sleek i-Divine Storm Palette
I recently treated myself to the Sleek i-Divine Storm Palette whilst on a cheeky little shopping trip with my sister. I have been after one of their palettes for a long time and I simply fell in love with the gorgeous metallic shades and I know this palette will be a firm favourite through the autumn and winter, especially with Halloween and Christmas parties on the horizon.

The Storm palette contains 12 gorgeous shades, with 3 mattes and 9 metallics with beautiful shimmer particles. The shades are perfect for all occasions with the top row great for everyday looks and the bottom row perfect for creating a bold evening look.

The shadows are highly pigmented considering the price point and I think the colour pay-off is fantastic. I haven’t experienced any creasing and I’ve found them to be very long wearing which is great for nights out and us girls who are always on the go. My particular favourites are the metallic green (Storm Cloud) and blue (Electric Storm) which can be used for a great twist on the classic smokey eye.

The palette comes with a sponge applicator, which personally I hate! Each to their own though! I have been applying the shadows with my Royal and Langnickel brush set and I’ve found them really easy to blend out. However, I have experienced a little bit of fall out during the application, so I tend to do my eyes before by base when using these shades.

I really love how pigmented and beautiful these shades look so I’d really recommend the Sleek i-Divine Storm Palette for those who love their metallics. You can get yours from the Sleek website or from Superdrug for just £7.99 which I think for the quality, is a bargain!

Have you tried any of the Sleek palettes before?

Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo by Eyestudio

Beauty Bloggers have gone mad for the Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo eyeshadows since their release and I have been dying to get my hands on some! This weekend I finally took the plunge and indulged myself in a couple of the gorgeous shades on offer as Boots are currently running a 3 for 2 offer on Maybeline products. I had my heart set on purchasing ‘Metallic Pomegranate’, ‘Everlasting Navy’ and ‘Pink Gold’. However, ‘Pink Gold’ was completely out of stock…so I settled on a different well hyped product in the beauty blogging world… Babylips, and that is a review for another day!!

These lovely little eyeshadows really remind me of the MAC Paintpots, and considering they only cost £4.99 each (or cheaper if they are on offer!) it is a great cheaper alternative for anyone who is strapped for cash.

I love that the shadows are very buildable, allowing just a gentle swipe of colour, or something really dramatic. I like to use mine as a base and then blend other shades into it. I think that ‘Everlasting Navy’ is the perfect foundation for a blue smokey eye and it has become a go to product.

I have also used them as eyeliners, and I have to say that they are wonderful as they add a gorgeous splash of colour and they last all day without smudging or creasing. Perfect for girls who are always on the go.

I apply the cream shadow with my fingers, and gently swipe it onto my eyelids using a small amount at a time. I did find that it sets quite quickly so I wouldn’t hang around too much before blending the cream outwards.

As you can see, these colours are both very pigmented, and it really doesn’t take a lot of product to get a strong colour. They are both quite shimmery as well which I love for a night out to create a dramatic look with a girly edge.

For just £4.99 I think that the Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo is a steal and I will definitely be investing in more colours. You can get yours now from Boots, who are offering 3 for 2 of Maybelline Products or Superdrug who are offering buy one get one half price.
